Description :  This book is a well-structured and critically acclaimed resource with a comprehensive eye on contemporary health care. Complementary therapies (CTs) are practices, systems or products for health that are outside the domain of conventional medicine i.e. allopathic or Western medicine, used either to treat illnesses or to promote health and well-being. Complementary therapies don't have any specific definition since it is a wide field and keeps changing constantly. The list of what is considered CT changes regularly and therapies whose safety and efficacy are demonstrated may become part of conventional medicine. Hopefully, the information in this book can contribute in some manner with the ongoing process of evolution of the models related to concepts of health, disease and healing.
